Patricia Thorne

1st Grade Teacher

Hello! My name is Patricia Thorne and I am from Watsonville, CA. I attended Concordia University Irvine where I received my BA in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Child Development. After teaching in St. Louis for two years (second and third grade), I am so happy to be back in my home state and living in Carlsbad! I love reading, traveling, and being outdoors with my dog. 


I am so excited to be teaching first grade at AFCS! I am passionate about creating an environment for students where they feel safe and nurtured. I advocate for my students and empower them to grow into life-long learners.
